Hose kits for data center cooling systems provide a flexible connection between the secondary cooling devices (ie: Rear Door Heat Exchanger (RDHx)) and the Coolant Distribution Unit or External Manifold. The hose kits install quickly and adapt easily to unique physical layouts in your data center. Quick-connect couplings provide plug-and-play operation and eliminate the need to braze pipes near equipment racks. Flexible hosing is easily deployed under raised floors or overhead, allowing the cooling solution to be scaled as needed. Unlike hard-piped manifolds, flexible hose kits are not fixed in place and can be easily rearranged, allowing for frequent realignments of equipment.
The hose kit ensures that the chilled water connections within the Coolcentric system are drip-proof and long-lasting. Coolcentric manufactures each hose kit using highly engineered materials and performs strict quality tests on each hose assembly.
High-Performance Hoses Mean Efficient and Effective Data Center Equipment Cooling
Each hose is made of an inert, abrasion-resistant material called ethylene propylene diene monomer. Every fitting is made of stainless steel, and is available as a self-sealing, drip-proof, quick-disconnect coupling or as a threaded NPT fitting. Every coupling is individually tested using a helium gas test, then every completed hose assembly is subjected to a 250psi (1760uPa) leak test; the maximum in normal operation is 70-95psi (460uPa to 660uPa).

- High-quality materials and stringent testing ensure the best performance and peace of mind
- A variety of hose configurations suit almost any data center need
- Available with an unmatched 3-year limited warranty
- All kits are made in the USA
Hose Kit Deployment
Coolcentric offers a variety of hose kits to fit most data center system cooling installations. Straight hoses are designed for use in raised-floor environments or in overhead configurations where adequate bend radius is necessary to prevent kinking of the hose. Right-angle hoses are designed for use in nonraised-floor environments; the 90-degree joint allows the hose to be routed at a sharp angle without kinking the hose or requiring a lot of room to bend it. Hoses can be ordered with quick-connect couplings on both ends, or with a quick-connect coupling at one end and a standard threaded NPT fitting on the other end. A variety of standard lengths are available, ranging from 3 to 100 feet (0.9m to 30m). Custom lengths and configurations can be produced; contact Coolcentric for more information.
